I have very recently upgraded to Version 89.0 (Windows 10) and I can't help but wonder why some key characteristics have been changed for the worse. The display format for the Bookmarks list is now spaced so large that my Bookmarks no longer fit on a single screen, and I can find no adjustment available to users. Also, the new tab screen no longer shows the image of the page, making the display less useful. What was broken in these features that Mozilla found a need to "fix" them? Is there anything a user can do to "undo" these changes?

I deplore the way the browser looks now and want the old look back... I have vision problems and am totally ignorant about computers. I finally found FF and the last version was PERFECT. I could clearly see it, knew how to use it, and LOVED it and I WANT IT BACK. SIMPLY... Because I am so ignorant, the instructions I have seen so far might have been written in a foreign language. Is there a SIMPLE way to restore the OLD LOOK and feel. Keeping all the new security and other stuff is fine...although I was fine with the way it was, but I will have to find another browser if someone cannot help me fix the image back to the way it was. Please, why do they upgrade this stuff and not leave a way to keep the old look for those of us who don't want to change? If anyone can help me...I would really appreciate it. Thank you.

A new version has been released - 89. And the user interface has changed again. And some of the changes are very annoying. I thought I would write a feedback (review). But I found out through google that the feedback page has been down since 2014.

So the question would be where can I leave feedback on one change or another?

After the Firefox upgrade to version 89, the icons disappeared from the menu. When I look at the changes page, I see that they have been specifically removed. In my case, the functionality of the Firefox menu has been severely compromised by losing those icons. So far, I’ve used those icons as a mechanism for faster navigation between different points. Because it is faster to recognize a single icon (character) than to read text. In the past, toolbar items overlapped menu items with icons. And now not. Not only that, the layout of the menu items has changed.

My suggestion would be to return the icons. And make them show / hide through settings.

The 89.0 (64-bit) update to Firefox is a joke! When are fixes coming or is there any way for me to return to the previous edition. I cannot get used to this charade.

I think that Firefox is by far the most superior browser and this update is just so not Firefox. It hurts. It hurts really bad!

Hello, today I was surprised with a update ver.88 -> 89. It completely changed the look. Few weeks back it was similar with Thunderbird.

I hate this look. I want old look back - how to do this. I tried rollback to 88, but it ask to create new profile - after copying all content of profile it dose not work...

Is there a way to change look of 89 to look exactly like 88 ?

Everything was running JUST FINE before i turned on my laptop to find things had changed without my permission. Im just a basic man, not an I.T SPECIALIST. I just want to get on the net, thats it! Is that too much to ask seeing that with free will we chose Firefox, but its no better than any Microsoft crap. Takes hours to correct, if at all what these fools do to my routine online after their stupid updates. These fools must expect that everyone is a qualified proffessional who has plenty of time to fix this update mess. Its not the case FYI Firefox staff. And this stuff has been going on for years too and looks set to never end. Why cant my home page remain the same because guess what, it WAS working great until this so called update. What a mess.Firefox have caused me.

How the hell do i get my ORIGINAL, UNALTERED HOME PAGE BACK? Home tab disapeared as well which is common i see and has been going on for years now without an end in sight.. We seem to be the ones wiping Firefoxs arses, like little babies.

JUST SOME FRIENDLY INTELLIGENT ADVICE. HOW ABOUT DOING UPDATES WITHOUT TURNING EVERYTHING UPSIDE DOWN. Probably too much common sense for people today. Best thing is to just keep this internet to a minimum or you will be tearing youre out regularly.

Thanks Firefox for wasting my time on numerous occasions. Im very grateful for your expertise.
